    Skeeter, Not to worry. Everything's cool. So, how ya been? It's been
    ages. How's the family up there?
    Listen, do you ever bump into Janis Joplin? She was so tiny and HOT.
    How's Jim Morrison doing? I hear that he's crossed the line. Last I
    heard he was a Back Door Man and recently visited Brokeback Mountain.
    Man, so many have left us. It's a good thing that everyone was able to
    meet at Woodstock. Why weren't you there. They were looking for
    country and western. Willie Nelson was really looking forward to
    seeing you there. I hope Jimmy Hendrix has finally decided to stop
    using that heavy duty stuff. It's pretty well known that he spiked a
    *hot shot*. It was 99 percent pure. James Brown still doing his * moon
    walk*?
    Things been going well down here. Of course we're having trouble with
    Iraq. Everyone's right handed there. They use the left hand for
    wiping. I can remember seeing you a while back. You did your songs
    with such feelings. Ya gave alot of guys the tingles. Well baby, miss
    ya alot. Have a safe trip back. One thing tho, as you travel back make
    sure you don't bump into any satellites. So far, it aint the end of
    the world here but we've got a groovy thing going on called global
    warming. Thanks for stopping by. Be good.
